I have commented about the issue surrounding the controversy regarding possible changes to Winchester Hospital's A&E.

I have always been under the impression that a decision has already been made where there are now efforts to 'sell' the plans.

Winchester is an ideal hub located centrally to provide an emergency service.

Located in Basingstoke, would apart from costing millions, mean ambulances travelling along an already congested M3. Further those with friend and family would have the awful stress of travelling to Basingstoke. 

The idea does not make common sense. Something residents in the region certainly possess.

Winchester and the area is fortunate in having such a vocationally focused hospital and A&E. 

If it works don't fix it.
